This fight is really separating the idiots from logical folks. Anyone having Cotto winning more than 3 rounds at most, is a moron and should give up scoring fights from now.

I disagree. I think people who deny the closeness of rounds are simply preoccupied with making Floyd's victory look easy.You can't make a blanket statement like that when lots of people have 4 rounds, and some have 5.

4 is the most Cotto won. And that's pushing it a bit.

The first 3 in general were not as clear cut as people make them seem.
Round 2 was indeed close, but it was a Floyd round. Gander had round 2 in favor of Cotto due to body work, but later changed it after re-watching it again.

Lemme ask this:

Being the champion, shouldn't Floyd have taken the title away and there4 all close rounds should be given to the champ?

That's because you're biased bogotazo. At some point the shit has to stop.

cotto got no love from HBO or the judges for his bodywork and I think that is why he was po'd about the scoring. I do not blame him at all. I say lets see a rematch in Puerto Rico...

USA Today? DKSAB!

9-3

8-4 if you are generous

Those scores don't really tell the story of how competitive Cotto was though.
